Pepsi Jobs: Truck Driving a Major OptionWritten by Margaret Wommack
Although those new P. Diddy Pepsi commercials are very entertaining, Pepsi truck driving isn't just for P. Diddy. Pepsi is a large company that not only offers traditional job opportunities, but also truck driving jobs as well. Pepsi, a division of Pepsico, is a company built for growth. It is third largest bottling company in United States. They put their resources back into companies growth, only venturing on safe, stable acquisitions and building companies up inside. They are aware of risks and thus are more stable than many other companies.
Pepsico generates yearly revenues of $27 billion and employs 143,000 individuals, many of whom are truck drivers. Pepsi hires truckers based upon safety (potential drivers must be at least 21 years old with a clean driving record for at least last three years), willing attitude (punctuality, helpfulness, accuracy, safety, professional manner), and a minimum physical capability (since truck drivers will have to lift 40 pound loads repeatedly through day). Pepsi prides itself on offering equal employment opportunities to all people, valuing diversity in workplace.
